The first ever World Series MVP (1955), Johnny Podres (b. 1932 - d. 2008) played from 1953 to 1969 for the Dodgers, Tigers and Padres. He won the World Series 3 times with the Dodgers in 1955, 1959 and 1963. I think its kind of cool that this is his 1955 Topps and he was the World Series MVP in 1955. He finished his career with a record 148-116 and an ERA of 3.68.
